Antonino is the Group Leader of the Detectors group in the X-ray Science Division of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory as well as a Senior Fellow at the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE). The group conducts R&D in X-ray detectors to enable scientific advances at the APS, and operates the APS Detector Pool, which provides technical services and support for APS beamlines and users. Antonino received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Washington in 2005. He was hired as an Assistant Physicist at the APS in 2005. During this period, Antonino was pivotal in cementing the operations of the Detector Pool, which provides services to over half of APS beamlines. Antonino also successfully competed for a 5-year, $2.5M Department of Energy (DOE) Early Career Research Grant, awarded in 2010, on the development of superconducting detector technology applied to high-energy resolution X-ray detectors.
